R22 & R44 STCs for CPD & Autopilot - Industry Market Research Requests

04-13-2017 04:55:59

Hi: I am seeking your opinion on both our products, the (CPD) Collective Pull Down for the R22/R44 and the (HAP) HeliTrak Autopilot for the R44. We are looking for industry pros and cons about: - Interest in the products? - What do you think it should or shouldn’t do? - What aircraft you think we should pursue? - Pricing? CPD $10k - $15K? - Pricing? HAP $45K - $55K? - What drives your opinion? - Your thoughts on a HeliTrak - Traveling Installer to do the installations? - Contact information of anyone you know that would be interested in giving us their opinion as well. Any response on these topics will help guide the direction of our company and will be very appreciated. Thank you Suzie

A traveling installer is a great idea. Has Robinson Helicopter endorsed either product?

Another subject slightly OT:
Robinson has a major problem with their main rotor blades and it continues to this day.
We continue to see accident reports of blade failure and this results in ridiculous ADs and SBs to the owners of the ship.
Diamond is prototyping a new helicopter that would compete with the R44. Watch out!
